Maxwell from Flint Michigan wrote in and requested a Tuesday Tip on options for filters for the F&V R-300 LED Ring Light. This trick can work for other LED lights as well. We’re simply using the Rosco Color Effects Kit as our filter system for this Ring Light.
Since the filters that come with the F&V R-300 LED Ring Light are attached via magnets, it was easy to secure the filters onto the light without having to use tape, C47′s or anything else as a fastener. I traced the inner and outer areas of the light and cut around them to fit the shape of the housing on the Ring Light. **Technically don’t even need to trim the outer pieces, as the filter will stay safely on so long as the inner circle has been cut out. This means that on rectangular lights, depending on whether or not the housing is recessed, you may be able to skip the Martha Stewart process of tracing and trimming altogether. This really depends on the type of light you’re using. Keep in mind that LED lights are COOL which means you don’t have to worry about your gels melting. This Rosco Color Effects Kit is smaller as well so it’s cheaper than traditional gels.color filters, color gels, F&V R-300 LED Ring Light, filter, gel system, LED light, lighting, lighting tricks, oliviatech, Rosco Color Effects Kit, tips, Tuesday Tip
